At some point, every business owner comes upon financial realities:  Additional funds from lenders or investors may be needed to help the business grow.  An acquisition may be appropriate – and could be the most cost-effective way to bring new customers into the fold.  Or, for reasons that range from strategic to retirement, a merger/sale may be in the offing.

“Bill is a business attorney and significantly more. He is a strategic thinker who is able to identify and create opportunities for clients as they progress through the growth cycle of their businesses. He understands the advantages associated with properly timed and supported business acquisition, divestiture and recapitalization events and brings this knowledge to the table for his clients.” Ellen Huxtable, Business innovation speaker, trainer and author; community board member at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

 Whether your option is buying, selling or recapitalization – or some combination of these – the process can seem daunting, especially if this is your first time facing these options.  That’s why knowing about Bill Price and his GrowthLaw services matters. Let GrowthLaw help. 

 Cost to you would generally be 1% of sale price, due at closing.

Capital infusion

Bill can explain various financing options, from loans and factoring to angel financing or selling your company – to outsiders or employees.  One idea:  A larger company may be willing to invest by purchasing a share of your business – or by buying the business outright. A buyout could still leave you running the business – or free you to move to a new enterprise.

New customers can fuel growth

The traditional way to grow a business is through acquiring new customers.  You can do that by strategic product (or services) positioning; market research and prospect identification; plumbing your marketing and sales contacts; and decision input and conversations with customers during the selling cycle.

Or you can buy a company

Buying a competitor may make the most strategic sense for your company – if you find one that already targets your sector and sells similar products or services, this approach can bring your business new customers who already are familiar with the type of products/services you sell.
